AcneFree Severe Review:

Treatment Details:

AcneFree is a 3-step acne treatment system produced by University Medical Products, similar to ProActiv Acne Solution. The active ingredient in AcneFree is a prescription quality benzoyl peroxide that works by utilizing a time released formula. University Medical Products claims that this formula of benzoyl peroxide will help by continuously fighting acne 24/7.  AcneFree comes with a cleanser, which also works as a scrub to gently exfoliate dirt and impurities from the skin. The cleanser rids skin of dirt and oils that can clog pores and cause acne. The next step in this acne treatment system is the AcneFree renewing toner, which balances and refreshes the skin by removing dead skin and excess oils. The last step in this 3-step system is the AcneFree repair lotion. AcneFree’s repair lotion is an intensive treatment that penetrates pores to dry up existing acne. They claim that the AcneFree repair lotion is non-irritating and safe for the entire face. University Medical Products suggests AcneFree for adult acne, but it may be effective on teenagers and young adults as well.


The positives about the AcneFree acne treatment regime have mostly to do with its accessibility. AcneFree is priced in a range that is very affordable for most people. It can be purchased at a low price of around $19.95 on the AcneFree.com online store, as well as stores such as Target and Wal-Mart. They also have begun to manufacture a “sensitive skin” regimen, as well as “severe acne” and “active” treatment systems, so individuals can purchase a system that is customized to their skin type. In addition to these advantages, consumers can find many positive reviews on the AcneFree acne treatment system.


There are several negatives about AcneFree that consumers should be aware of. One of those negatives is that the only active ingredient listed on the AnceFree.com website is benzoyl peroxide. Benzoyl peroxide has been known to be extremely drying and irritating to some people’s skin. If you have sensitive skin, AcneFree may be too harsh for your skin and can actually make the condition of your skin worse. Also, if AcneFree is purchased off of the AcneFree website, they do not pay for shipping like some other companies do, so you can expect to pay around $7.95 for shipping. The only other real con to the AcneFree system is that it is only guaranteed for 30 days. This is a considerably shorter guarantee than many other acne treatment systems, and it may not be a long enough time to truly test how well the AcneFree acne treatment system works on your skin.

Final Thoughts:

AcneFree treats acne by giving you a 3-step system. The cleanser washes away dirt and oils, the toner renews and refreshes skin while shrinking your pores, and the AcneFree repair lotion claims to heal and prevent acne. Although AcneFree is a well-known and affordable product, there are other complete acne treatments on the market that only cost a little more and will not dry and irritate your skin like AcneFree may. Especially if you have sensitive skin, AcneFree is not recommended to treat your acne.
